We are Biased
We must admit up front that we are biased in favor of regulator clocks and watches. Simply stated, a regulator is a timepiece that features a centrally mounted minute hand and a separate hour hand in a subsidiary dial.
Some watchmakers place the hour hand at the top of the watch, as this is easier to make from a movement perspective. But true regulators always mount the hour dial at the bottom or 6 position, and this takes much more time to modify the movement. Stefan wisely chose to go the authentic route and build the hour dial at 6.The Details
This watch like all those from Stefan Kudoke is beautifully made, with all of the engraving and skeletonization performed completely by hand. The result is stunning - by incorporating black gold into many of the bridges and wheels he has created a watch with great depth.
We've seen a lot of regulator watches both from brands that we represent and from others, but we know of no other regulator that achieves the design standards of this watch. You will want to tell time frequently just to sneak a glance at this watch, and when you do don't be surprised if others also want a quick look.The Bottom Line
If you're looking for a watch that features great complication and is decorated and engraved in a way that you get a "wow factor" with each look, this is your watch.
This watch features a stainless steel case with a 42 mm diameter and sapphire crystals on both sides. It is fitted with a calf leather black strap with a signed Stefan Kudoke tang buckle.
